Changes in progress




Hi there!

I'm in the process of making changes to the blog, so please don't worry if some links aren't working (yet) - I'm working on them! If the blog looks rather wonky, again, not to worry, I'm trying to get things back up and running.

I appreciate your patience! Thanks!

Kiko Cosmetics - Haul and First Impressions!

I'd first heard of Kiko Cosmetics on Reddit, where a couple of European Redditors were talking about their Long Lasting Shadow Sticks being a 'dupe' for the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks. They weren't very talked about, though, because they aren't easily available in the States, and so they aren't very well known.

Kiko Cosmetics is an Italian brand, and is widely available in Europe. They have several storefronts in the European countries, and they also have an online webstore; unfortunately this is also seems to be only limited to the European countries.

So anyway, a while ago I noticed that the UK Kiko website was having a sale, and so I thought it was a good time to try out some of their products. As I mentioned, I had a big hitch - they don't ship to the States! Luckily, a very kind Redditor offered to place the order for me, and then shipped it over.

Top 14 in 2014; also, hello 2015!

2014 was so last year guys (hur hur hur). Still, with all the ridiculous ups and downs I had, it's a wonder that I managed to graduate! Yes, that's right - I now have a second Master's degree (but no job as yet, mind you sobs uncontrollably.)

I will say that 2014 was the year I really came into my own when it comes to makeup - bridging the gap between "I bought this and it doesn't work because I don't know how to use it" to "I bought this and it doesn't work because it doesn't work for me". While I'm no means at any sort of professional level, I now have the ability to look nice, should I choose to!

That being said, there were some things that really stood out to me in 2014. Unfortunately, some of them were limited edition items, so in those cases I will suggest alternatives, if I can.

Let's get right to it, shall we?
